Opening of the Lionel Gell School of Instruction for Rolls-Royce and Bentley
The Sir Henry Royce Foundation officially opened its newest acquisition on 28 March 2014: the Lionel Gell School of Instruction for Rolls-Royce and Bentley Owners. This was made possible by a
significant donation from Victorian Member, Lionel Gell, to assist in the training and education of both Club members and the general public in the philosophies of Henry Royce.
The recently renovated factory houses four hoists, one of which is fully moveable, tools and ancillary maintenance equipment, an office with computer to allow storage of manuals and other
information, a kitchen and washing facilities for service rags, etc, as well as a toilet and shower facility to allow hard-working persons to clean up before returning home.
It is planned that the Victorian Branch Technical Section will make full use of the facility as the SHRF begins to introduce training sessions for apprentices and other interested groups.
Those interested are invited to visit this site in Rowville, as well as Bill Allsep House just around the corner, when next in Melbourne.
At the opening the generous donation by Lionel was acknowledged by the Foundation and the Victoria Branch with a function of great significance to the SHRF and the Victoria Branch.
